Passing - Nella Larsen

From the Harlem Renaissance, it deals with secretly passing (for white). It occurs to me this is slightly less relevant in the specific today, but is just as relevant if you consider other repressions that still exist.

I only read "Passing" from this book. The other major work here is "Quicksand".
